If it is a simple DUI conviction, chances are you will not face deportation. You may be not be eligible to naturalize until the probation period has ended. I would recommend you take all of your paperwork and consult with a local attorney so that your issue can be properly assessed.
It sounds like you would benefit from an in person consultation with an attorney.
We would have to have more details to give you an intelligent answer.
